regarding Raspberry Pi

Recommended Posts

Holy smoke! To show how ignorant I am, I just learned the meaning "wifi". I thought "wifi" was connecting your computer wirelessly to the internet...well, that's true but it also means connecting wireless devices on a network. Geeze....

Yeah, it simply means a wireless connection whether it be over the internet or from machine to machine. I tranafer files all time over WiFi using SSH (scp) all time time. We used to have LAN parties over WiFi (local only) years ago.

Wireless communication is the transfer of information or power between two or more points that are not connected by an electrical conductor. The most common wireless technologies use radio waves. With radio waves distances can be short, such as a few meters for Bluetooth or as far as millions of kilometers for deep-space radio communications. It encompasses various types of fixed, mobile, and portable applications, including two-way radios, cellular telephones, personal digital assistants (PDAs), and wireless networking. Other examples of applications of radio wireless technology include GPS units, garage door openers, wireless computer mouse, keyboards and headsets, headphones, radio receivers, satellite television, broadcast television and cordless telephones. Somewhat less common methods of achieving wireless communications include the use of other electromagnetic wireless technologies, such as light, magnetic, or electric fields or the use of sound.

Reminds me about the time when I learned about gapping the points on my Valiant with a matchbook. Man, I'm a mechanic now, so I thought...lol. A few years later I bought my first Ford Escort (used, of course).....One day, I had a problem starting it so I put my mechanics hat on and got my matchbook out and popped the distributor cap and.....NO POINTS! Same thing will happen with WIFI. Now that I'm a wifi guru, next month they'll change it to something else. lol

I tried this last year but I sort of drop it until now.  Using Remote.It I can log remotely into the Raspberry Pi I have set up over my folks for spotting planes using Flight Aware for Pi.  But can I use it remotely as a music server?  It would be cool if that was possible....
